Union Power: The United Electrical Workers in Erie, Pennsylvania



Only 1 left in stock


Union Power is a richly empowering history told from below, showing that the collective efforts of the many can challenge the supremacy of the few.  Erie’s two UE locals confronted a daunting array of obstacles:  the corporate superpower General Electric; ferocious red-baiting; and later, the debilitating impact of globalization.  Yet, by working across ethnic, gender and racial divides, communities of people built a viable working-class base powered by real democracy.  While the union’s victories could not be sustained completely, the UE is still alive and fighting in Erie.  This book is an exuberant  and eloquent testament to this fight, and a reminder to every worker – employed or unemployed; in a union or out – that an injury to one is an injury to all.
